I obtained my M.S. degree in Computer Science, and B.S. with a dual degree in Computer Science and Mathematics at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in Data Mining Group (DMG), where I was fortunately advised by Prof. Jiawei Han.

My current research area is in Trustworthy Machine Learning and AI For Science. My exploration interests lie in the intersections of general Natural Language Processing, Large Language Models, and Deep Learning.
